iLRN 2018 Authors Info

Contributions are welcome as work-in-progress, research results, technical development, and best practices. Research, development, and best practices contributions will be accepted according to their quality and relevance either as full or short papers. Work-in-progress will only be accepted as short papers and posters.

Publications

1. Selected high quality papers from the main track and from the special tracks will be selected to be published as full papers in Springer’s Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) conference proceedings series (see also http://www.springer.com/series/7899); the acceptance rate for the Springer proceedings will be approximately 35 % of the submitted papers.

CCIS Springer Proceedings are indexed by:2. The remaining accepted contributions will be published in iLRN’s online proceedings volume with individually linked DOIs and an overall ISBN number. Please note that this proceedings volume is published by the publishing house of the Graz University of Technology (Austria) and is not yet indexed by SCOPUS. Previous years’ proceedings are available online at: http://proceedings.immersivelrn.org.

3. Further, a select number of manuscripts published in either of the proceedings volumes will be invited to submit an extended version of their conference papers for publication in a special issue. Papers centering on Educational Research will be invited to submit to an special issue of the Journal of Educational Computing Research (Social Sciences Citation Index. Journal Citation Reports impact factor 2016: 0.678). Papers centering on Technology & Computer Science will be invited to submit to an special issue of the Journal of Universal Computer Science (Journal Citation Reports impact factor 2016: 0.696).
